File this one under "wouldn't it be lovely if common sense were really comm on?" Both of those items are still part of our basic safety rules. People come here from all over the place and what might seem like "common sense" to you and me, is completely foreign
to others. I vote to leave it in - in fact, I train to it (don't pipette by mouth, no eating and drinking) in my campus lab safety classes. Debbie ------------------ Debbie M.

She has never seen it done, and couldn't imagine anyone who would EVER think of doing it. I guess I could ask the same about the " No eating or drinking" rule. Any thoughts?
